De-stressing with Montagne Jeunesse Chocolate Masque

Hey guys! How are you all?

When the weekend rolls in, I can't help but want to pamper myself silly! It's like somehow de-stressing oneself. Or more like getting ready for the next set of challenges in the upcoming days by preparing oneself fully. I have a stressful job that I very much like, so I have to get rid of all those negative vibes and impurities and start anew when the busy weekday comes!.

Unlike most girls I know, I don't really like going to the dermatologist/salons to get facials. I don't want needles poking my skin, I am uncomfortable with the word "microdermabrasion" or the idea of harsh chemicals burning off dead skin cells. I dunno, but I'm kinda scared of all of it. I like organic creams, friendly-looking fruity masks and deep cleansing via gentle face scrubs! Aren't those less scary? I like when things are less scary!

Since today is Sunday, I got up early to start my 'pampering' since I have a date with the boyfrun, too. Earlier this week I bought several Montagne Jeunesse packs because I've read reviews that it's really good. It's also rated 4/5 by MakeUpAlley reviews! It's a pretty cheap find, just about P79 for a pack. I bought several packs to try out but today I used the Chocolate Masque!



Montagne Jeunesse Chocolate Masque

I've read some tips that are useful when dealing with this kind of Masque (especially for those very much used to sheet masks... like me! :p )

  • Don't wear a white shirt. As much as possible just wrap a towel around you.
  • Clip your hair! Especially when you're hair has lots of short layers, it's important to pin them back. You don't want chocolate all over your bangs.
  • Always use lukewarm water
  • Prepare an extra towel to wipe your fingers with after applying.

Aside from all those precautions above, the Chocolate Masque is pretty easy to apply. It's a straightforward masque, and it spreads amazingly well without it being drippy. Here is when I applied the masque:

It's soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo super yummy smelling! I wanted to eat it! Smells like real chocolate and it's so smooth, like it's ready to be spread on a loaf bread LOL! Even my sister and nieces commented how chocolate-y it is from across the room. But they did laugh at me when they took a look at my face :(



You'll be needing a towel because your fingers can get a little messy with the application. After the 10-minute mark, it's already hard. Avoid letting it sit on your face for more than the required time (max 20 mins). Washing it off is fairly easy especially when you use warm water, no need to rub it all out harshly.

I felt that my face was very smooth! WOW! I love the silky feel of it! I felt that it was pretty cleansing, like a lot less week's worth of gunk on my face. I am inlove with the smell, because the chocolatey smell stays with you even after you've removed the masque. My face looked clearer somewhat! I really like this masque for my face and I think that I will use it once a week for my pampering and de-stressing. I'm glad I bought a bit for me to enjoy in the next weeks!

Thanks for reading! :) See youuuu!
